Good thing party leadership candidates take this into account. It will help bring voters back into the fold

Just once why don't you address an issue without trying to deflect? You'd be amazed at how differently people would treat you.

You can't post a video with 'anti-white' unironically in the title and expect to be taken seriously by halfway reasonable people.

She does come off as very apologetic. It's not "anti-white." But she is being is tad ridiculous. Her 'job to shut other white people down' is obnoxious. There's no sense in apologizing to people who don't know they're being offended (in this context, she's suggesting black democrats need white democrats apology).

And now you're all talking about Anti-White girl instead of the actual topic. Deflection achieved.

Ms. Brown's speech went a little bit viral, didn't it....you think it helped her chances to win DNC chair?

well, it is a thread about racism, and that is how said deflection works: "liberals are the REAL racists."

it's really telling when white people get upset when people talk about white people in the way white people talk about other people.

Meanwhile, though, Oregoropa meanders on out of her without addressing the actual question. It's just infuriating.

Sorry, had to drive for 2 hours. I read the article. Radicalization of whites. Is it OK to read an essay and find it a bit hyperbolic? I don't see a great uprising of white supremacy. Just because hundreds of counties flipped to Trump in the heartland doesn't mean the Fourth Reich is rising in the Rust Belt. Irvine, are you trying to warn us, or just looking for another reason to justify Trump's win?

Is this the narrative that is driving the Democratic party? So much so that a candidate running for the chair of the party says it is her job to "shut white people up"

Sure white privilege exists. I get her general gist. The matter of importance to the Democratic party is up to them. As a matter of political strategy to have a chairwoman 'shut white people up' is disastrous for the party.

What's worse, his deflection, or when bob or the iron horse commit drive by postings and plug their ears after?

The thread was dormant until 2 postings before mine today. I'm not going back to the November conversation.

With the article posted the general topic of the nexus of race-politics seemed to be an interesting place to plant a counter-flag.

You could call it deflection. I'm just curious on the thought process of both sides.

Better than me being snarky and just reply "Scary"

A rise? Maybe not, an emboldening? Yes, which leads to a rise.

But it's much more important to focus on her use of "shut white people up", even if we agree about the context. You just don't talk about white folk like that.

. . . and expect to prevent a supermajority of the GOP in the Senate.

I'm sure this a situation many in here would like to avoid. The Democratic needs to figure out how to advance social justice while at the same time maintain the governance to achieve those goals. IE 2018 Midterms.

From a political standpoint it may not be an easy thing to do.

Oregoropa, I apologize, I made a mistake. I thought Irvine had posted about this:

https://theintercept.com/2017/01/31/...w-enforcement/

I guess I read the article around the time Irvine posted and just made an assumption. I could've sworn I clicked the link to be sure, but I was mistaken. I am very sorry, while you may have been a bit flippant (though as you say, you were driving) your post was clearly in line with Irvine's. I made a mistake.

But this does raise a valid counterpoint to your argument that there is not a white supremacy uprising upon us.

Avoid and deflect. Avoid and deflect. Avoid and... yeah we know you got this one down.


You still think you have a movement, don't you?

There's no Hillary to run against this time. The Con had 74 million vote against him to his 62 million. And of those 62 a large portion were just anti-Hillary votes and reluctant party votes. This will all be about Trump's performance now. Everything has changed. You can't push the agenda he is AND grow the economy. If he had stuck with jobs, outdated and short term as they are, I'd say you're probably right, but that's not the path he seems to be going. When you have protest every turn you take, companies take notice.
